 The Significant Gesture: The Black and White Series

 

Artist, Josephine Barreiro, presents her exploration of emotion and intention through gestural works. Gestures are a nonverbal form of communication for which bodily actions are used to communicate important messages. Gestures are represented by a movement or position of the hand, arm, body, head or face. They meaningfully express thought, intention, and emotions. Barreiro's human or animal figures convey emotional and visual responses to life experiences and interactions with others and the environment. It is important to recognize that it is our nonverbal communication, our gestures and postures, that speak the loudest.
